This park covers an area of old brine workings. St Richard the patron saint of Droitwich is remembered here with a statue in his honour. The park is just the other side of the Saltway road from the town’s shopping centre and provides a pleasant green corridor along the canal and River Salwarpe.

You’ll find a play area designed to a natural play theme with wooden equipment. The Canal was opened on Friday 1st July 2011 by Caroline Spelman (Secretary of State for the Department of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs) after many years of restoration work. Come and enjoy the sight of narrow boats as they negotiate the canal and locks in the park.
